Wedding Officiant: To Give a Gift?

If the officiant’s personalized service is a gift in itself, is she required to give an additional gift



(page 2 of 2)

The Wedding Guru says: If you compose a truly customized ceremony and offer a special rate, that is your gift. However — though another wedding gift is not expected — if you are very close to couple or to their families, you may want to give an additional gift. The fact that you’re asking this question makes me think that for “special” weddings such as these, you’re not comfortable leaving out a gift, so go with your gut and I’m sure your decision will be the correct one.
